Howdy from the Republic of Texas! This is by no means my first grow. But like most of my recent grows there are a lot of first. This is my first autoflower grow. That’s them (day 2) in the back on the bottom shelf.
First a little about yours truly. I am a native born Texican. What that means is I don’t consider Taco Bell to be “Mexican” food, I know that BBQ and grilling are two totally different things and I don’t suffer people who disparage the great state of Texas. I won’t do so you with your state (unless you’re from Alaska and then all bets are off).
Now I realize that you probably aren’t reading this to learn about your’s truly so I’ll post current picture of this year’s mom plant.
She’s a feisty little number I’ve cooked up for this year’s festivities. She’s sitting in a 3 gallon fabric pot (fabric pots are new this year) with a mixture of half coco coir and half Black Cow manure/worm dirt with a handful of perlite per gallon. I feed her and her sisters only organically with fish emulsion mixed with either rain water or spring water ph @ 7. I add 1.5 ml of cal/mag to each gallon. All my plants are watered with 150-450 ml calmag water every other day or so. Saturday they all get a good soak feed. My in ground plants are a whole other can of worms so to speak and I won’t get into that here.
I was born in Houston in 1960 and am currently a few days shy of my 60th birthday. I grew up in Humble, a small city north of Houston. A few days after my 14th birthday, I was thrown to the ground and stomped on by a 200+ lb adult. This was the cause of the first of three back injuries. I quit school at 17 and joined the Marines. I honestly didn’t know what a Marine was and probably could have saved myself a lot of pain and suffering and waited a year to join the army or navy. But, I needed to leave and this was the fastest way out the door. I suffered a sprain in my lower back in late '78.
I’m starting this topic on day 8 and I am amazed at the growth. I don’t know why I expected anything less with an 8 week flower. They will take their first day in the sun tomorrow. Yes it’s an indoor grow but I think the plant needs the sun
I missed posting this last night and I’ve been busy today. Let me just leave this here for now and I’ll report in later.
Day 9 and their first real sunshine. Pita is not impressed
